First Lady Melania Trump has championed cyber-bullying as a cause, but Hoover visiting fellow Markos Kounalakis thinks she should broaden her horizons – to include a little diplomacy in her native Central Europe. It’s a portion of the world that’s drifted into angry nationalism, economic uncertainty and civil unrest, with one country (Poland) displaying troubling anti-Semitic tendencies. Kounalakis talks about all of that, plus he discusses Vladimir Putin’s Russia playing a meddling role around the world.

    1.This is by far one of the worst podcasts I have ever listened to. Why do you want to sound like a bunch of entitled leftists by cussing every other word. Do you not, like them, have a vocabulary that is creative. Why would I ever listen to you again? I won’t!

    2. Can you ladies not giggle so much? It really grates.

     

    3. You had many great points and some very interesting content, but alas, #1 and #2 didn’t allow it to come through in a listenable format.

     

    Sorry, low class, low review. (I am hardly a prude either!)

    Um, what do Poles look back to – try the 1600s. Look up Jan Solbieski, the savior of the West/Christendom/Europe.

    I think this comment was intended for another podcast. This podcast was two men and they avoided giggling.
